Mike Anello talks with Pete Lechtanski in this episode of the JeepNewsNow Podcast. Pete is a life-long Jeep guy who, over the past few years, has been working on the world’s fastest Jeep Comanche pickup. They discuss the early days of Comanche speed records, what it’s like to race against the clock at Bonneville Salt Flats, and what it takes to modify a Comanche for a world record speed. They also discuss various Jeep engines over the years, as well as what the future holds.
